2015 Ford Focus

The updated 2015 Ford Focus made its first appearance a few days ago ahead of its Geneva Motor show debut. To sharpen its focus on the world wide dominant C-segment, Ford has restyled the car’s front and rear and also upgraded the interior.

The improvements include quieter shock-valves, modifications to rear suspension and less-intrusive stability control.

Engine & Performance

The company has announced that 2 engines will be offered; a standard 2.0 liter 4 cylinder gasoline engine and a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine.

The 1.0 liter engine will only be available with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 2.0-liter engine is expected to produce 160 hp and a torque of 146 lb-ft.

At first glance, you might not realize how much the exterior of this car has changed. However, if you compare pictures of the previous model and the current one, you will realize that the Focus has indeed grown up. The car has revised front & rear fascias.

Apart from this, the car sports a brand new hood, new front fenders and a tailgate. The car’s headlamps are more angular and tail-lamps sitting lower. The chrome at the front gives a much more grown-up Focus rather than a sportier one. Similar changes have been applied to the 4-door.


Ford went from traditional interior controls to flat touch-sensitive panels and voice controls. The interior has buttons on the dashboard for climate control and for ancillary systems and audio.

There is also a big touch-screen that remains at the center console for navigation, entertainment and 4-quadrant Sync system. There are new seat trims, and all improved Ford AppLink program, heated steering wheel, and a redesigned, easy-to-access glove box.

Safety Features

The car has an on-board radar that is used also for its radar-based blind-spot warning system along with a rear-view camera, both as standard equipment.
